Surprise. The Cuyahoga County Democrat Party endorsement for County Executive candidate went to Rep. Armand Budish. The Plain Dealer reports here.
The Cuyahoga County Executive Democrat Candidate Forum last weekend showed Budish getting 39 of a possible 53 votes in a straw poll. Former county Sheriff Bob Reid came in second with 8, and State Sen. Shirley Smith trailed with 4.
The likely Republican nominee is County Councilman Jack Schron.
